Nutrition Month – Member Resources

The resources we develop each year make your job of supporting the campaign a little easier. Interested in some history on the campaign, we got that too!

The Nutrition Month 2016 campaign was dedicated to supporting Canadians to make small changes to their eating – one meal at a time. The slogan for the campaign was Take a 100 meal journey: make small changes, one meal at a time.

To make it easier for you to get ready for the 2016 campaign we created a Toolkit which gave you access to all the information and resources you need to implement the campaign in your community or workplace

Locked Resources are for ‘Members Only’.

Nutrition Month is brought to you by Dietitians of Canada and thousands of dietitians across the country, in collaboration with the campaign sponsors. Our official sponsors for 2016 are Canadian Lentils and Dairy Farmers of Canada. Our new factsheet sponsors are the and the Barley Council of Canada

We are proud to name the following as our Official Nutrition Month 2016 Communication Ambassador Organizations:
